years ago a trusted obama health care white house warned the white house it was losing control of aobama care. the warnings were dire and specific, and ultimately ignored. david cutler, who worked on the obama 2008 campaign and was a valued outside health care consultant wrote this blunt memo to top white house economic adviser larry summers in may 2010, "i do not believe the relevant members of the administration understand the president's vision or have the capability to carry it out." he wrote "no one was in charge who had experience in any complex business startups" we worried basic regulations, technology and policy coordination would fail. >> you need to have the people who have understanding of the political process, people who understand how to work within an administration and people who understand how to build, start and build a business and unfortunately, they just didn't get all of those people together. >> reporter: the white house dismissed these and other warnings, it relied an a pointed bureaucrat and seepor health care advisers. fears from constant attacks from republica

an all-too-familiar situation at the white house, president obama has briefed on the shooting at l.a.x. within minutes of that unfolding and breaking news. he was briefed by his deputy chief of staff, white house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen,
circumstances. >> you met at the white house with senior aides going through this obama carroe rollout. as an insurance executive, you signed up basically for a deal here, which is to say, okay, we'll cover people who have preexisting conditions. we'll do that if you can deliver us some more business. give us younger, healthier people who probably aren't going to need our insurance, and that's how we'll make money and balance out the fact we're going to pay more out, covering people with preexisting conditions. that was the deal. is this model going to work based on the rollout you're seeing? >> well, there is no denying that the rollout has had bumps. and we actually expected there would be bumps in the beginning of the process. the good thing about the meeting we had at the white house is it was very positive, it was candid, we laid issues on the table, we had a good exchange with the folks at the white house and we had a commitment, particular commitment around a piece called direct enrollment. that direct enrollment allows us, the insurance industry, to help the administration get
for the white house. >> president obama has repeated said that anybody who likes the their existing healthcare coverage can keep it. but the reality is that insurance companies are required to make adjustments to comply with the new healthcare law. and that means hundreds of thousands of consumers in state after staff are being forced to cancel plans unless they had them prior to march, 2010, when the new law was passed. starting next year under the affordable care act, insurance companies must immediateh meet certain basic standards called e searchcial health benefits. there are 10 that must be covered, including doctors' visits, emergency care, hospitalization, maternity care, mental health treatment and prescriptions plans and more. any plan that does not include all of these can no longer be offered. insurance companies are sending cancellation letters to people whose coverage lacks some of the benefits. people most affected by this are people who buy insurance themselves, just freelancers and independent contractors. in all, nearly 14 markos moulitsas americans currently buy insurance thi
, the white house new millions of people would lose their health insurance, well, at least obama was honest with us. >> if you've got health insurance, you like your doctor, you like your plan, you can keep your doctor, can you keep your plan. if americans like their doctor, they will keep their doctor, and if you like your insurance plan you will keep it. no one will be able to take that away from you. if you're one of the more than 250 million americans who already have health insurance, will you keep your health insurance. if you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep your health care plan, period. >> he said period. even his punctuation lies. now the white house calls this a normal turnover, so was pompeii, but at least our leader, valerie jarrett, fought back tweeting from her cockpit within obama's cranium where she pulls the lever where she operates the sly left. he's pinky, she's the brain. the gist, plain it on the insurance company but that's like a landlord tripling your rent and then blaming you f
on the hill. >> well, we can just take the white house at its word. >> thank you. >> i'm using that tone, because clearly what they said is not true. and no one is coming out, where is president obama? let's hear it. let's have the explanation. were you misled. were you mistaken? what, instead we have carney not to believe our lying eyes and lying ears. instead, the white house predicted this back in 2010. they said more than 10 million would lose their plan because so many plans didn't meet the federal guidelines of obama care. but during the time, the president promised repeatedly the plans would be grandfathered. you heard ed say it. he said if you have a plan right now and obama care passes you will have a grandfathered plan. you will be able to keep your package. that is not true. well, grandfathering didn't work out at all because members of his administration saw to it. now some members of congress today put tough questions to one of the top obama care administrators on this whole thing. watch it. >> i am aware that there are issuers in states who are cancelling their old plans fo

sebelihe is bealsebelius. taking the blame for obama care. andy card, does every white house need staffers, even cabinet secretaries willing to take the blame and resign if it helps protect the president? >> i don't think they should take the blame if there's no culpability. but if they are culpable, yes, they have to stand up and take responsibility. i was troubled. the word of the president of the united states means an awful lot. you don't want him to exaggerate or embellish. you don't want him to represent a lie. staffers around the president help keep the president's language consistent with the realities of laws and with diplomacy. and that's something that we have seen diminish over the course of the last several months. maybe even more than that. so if secretary sebelius allowed the president to make statements that were not a hundred percent accurate, like, you will be able to keep your doctor, period. or you never have to change your insurance if you like your insurance, and they didn't put caveats on that for a long time. then yes, somebody should be held accountable. >> youed s
